The Snyderville Basin Planning Commission will review the long-term transportation plan on Tuesday
The commission has its hands full as it strives to meet the transportation needs of residents and visitors for decades to come.
Its long-term transportation plan outlines plans through 2050. By far the most expensive undertaking on the list is a drop between Olympic Parkway and Ute Blvd. along SR-224 to Kimball Junction. The county estimates it will cost more than $93 million.
Other road improvements planned in the basin include the widening of Landmark Dr.; a connector road between Bitner Ranch Rd. and Silver Creek Dr.; and an upgrade to the I-80 pedestrian tunnel at Pace Frontage Rd.
The commission will also hold a public hearing to discuss adding a moderate income housing chapter to the Snyderville Basin Master Plan.
HB 462, a major housing bill signed by Gov. Spencer Cox this year, requires Summit County to adopt a moderate-income housing component in its general plan by October 1.
When completed, a chapter on moderate income housing will give the county guidelines to follow that encourage denser development. Strategies the county could use include changing parking requirements for some residential developments and changing land use rules to allow for denser housing.
Additionally, the county is to implement a Housing and Transit Reinvestment Zone, or HTRZ, as part of the plan.
Tuesday’s meeting will take place online via Zoom. The agenda and meeting link are available here.
